The impact of bullying on identity & group affilation in subgroups : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Alla vill tillhöra något och vara med likasinnade. Mobbning är ett samhällsproblem som kan få förödande effekter, inte bara för de inblandade utan för alla. Syftet med denna kvalitativa intervjustudie var att undersöka hur mobbning bidrar till individers identitetsskapande hos subgrupps-medlemmar samt att undersöka vilken betydelse det har haft för individens sökande efter grupptillhörighet i subgrupper. Med en socialpsykologisk ansats studerades detta genom teorier om social identitet, konformitet, stämplingsteorin och gruppdynamik. Tio semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med individer som tidigare varit utsatta för mobbning och som sökt sig till olika subgrupper. Resultaten visar att mobbning uppstår för att andra individer anser att andra människor på något sätt sticker ut från folkmassan, att identiteter ser olika ut för olika individer och att människor söker sig till subgrupper där de kan känna sig som hemma. 

Abstract [en]

Everyone wants to belong to something and be with like-minded people. Bullying is a societal problem that can have devastating effects, not only for those involved but for everyone. The purpose of this qualitative interview study was to investigate how bullying contributes to individuals identity creation in subgroup members and to investigate what significance it has had for the individual's search for group affiliation in subgroups. With a social psychological approach, this was studied through theories of social identity, conformity, the labeling theory and group dynamics. Ten semi-structured interviews were conducted with individuals who had previously been exposed to bullying and who applied to different subgroups. The results show that bullying occurs because other individuals believe that other people in some way stand out from the crowd, that identities look different for different individuals and that people seek out subgroups where they can feel at home.
